Nice, I like the MV. Instead of being all fixed up and shiny and purty, it looks like it's been ridden and enjoyed, and from the looks of things someone is still enjoying it.

At least it looks like 6" over fork legs probably from "Forking by Frank's" Frank's Engineering in Evanston, not cheap +4" slugs! And the external springs are held by a tweek bar, and that ladder-rung brace really stiffens up the front end. And the neck is raked, instead of a raked triple tree. Used to see some really dangerous mods, at least that bike is rideable.

Those old Triumphs are a world unto themselves...

The MV was the only "rat" bike wasn't it? :O

WOW I didn't know you guys over the pond liked the stuff we made a few years ago over this side of the pond?

:)

Nice to see the straight thro' pipes!

hehe

(remembering my first british bike ride)

Being brought up on Jap Crap I hadn't experienced the "wrong way around" for controls.

I was fine until I came to a stop junction..... my brain fried and I had to just pull everything "in" and foot down on pedals.... P-A-N-I-C!!!!!

:lol
